Figure 3.

Comparison of the amino acid sequences of LA-a and LA-b with chitin-binding domains of other plant proteins. Conserved amino acid residues are shown as white letters on black background and similar residues are highlighted in grey. X in mulberry and Ficus proteins indicate residues that could not be identified by protein sequencers. The proteins shown here are LA-a and LA-b from mulberry (this study), MLX56 from mulberry (DNA database EF535852, [7]), 45-kDa allergen from F. benjamina [8], hevein-like protein from elderberry (AF074386, [19]), CHN50 from tobacco (X51599, [20]), CBP20 from tobacco (S72424, [21]), WIN1 from potato (X13497), prohevein from H. brasiliensis (M36986, [22]).
